I Finally Did It

I signed up for a half-marathon.  I have been wanting to do one for awhile now although I am not sure why since I have a love hate relationship with running.  But there is no turning back now, I paid the entry fee.  That in an of itself is a little crazy to me.  Basically I am paying them to torture myself, but I get a free t-shirt! 

Mr. ESPN and a couple of my girlfriends are running it too.  When I told Mr. ESPN my girlfriends were running it too he said, "Oh good, now you will have someone to run with" - as in now he doesn't have to feel bad about leaving me behind!  Nice huh? 

Needless to say Mother Nature better cooperate and send some fall weather our direction so I can start training outside, this 105 degree heat isn't going to cut it.  So if you are going to be in the desert in January (the weather is great here that time of year) come on out and cheer me on at the PF Chang's Rock n Roll Half-Marathon.  I have already enlisted The Kingston Queen but I need all of the encouragement I can get.  Is it too soon to think about what I am going to wear for the race???

Well, I def. think you need a cute and sassy running outfit. Maybe something in pink. You go girl! I have a friend who runs these Rock N Roll half marathons and loves them. Good luck. You can do it. I hear once you get involved in these things, you are addicted.

I've been saying I'm going to do a half marathon for 10 years. Hasn't happened. Yet. :)

I love my running skirts! Target has some and I have one from Athleta that is super comfortable. Maybe you will see Ginger there - I think she's talking about doing it. You're going to do awesome. Good luck training!

OMG. You are so brave. That's the FIRST thing I think of when I'm going to anything exciting. "What am I going to wear?" Tone thinks I'm crazy. Then he's always of my better ensemble.
Laughing about Mr. ESPN's sarcasm. You should get some extra training in and kick his ass. That'll teach him what sarcasm is all about.
Can't wait to hear about your training, crazy woman!

I have signed up for two and have never done it.

I just signed up to do the 3M half in January. I must finish a half before I turn 36.

Let's be each others motivation. Please?
